A smart organisation is needed to excel in research and innovation at the lowest possible costs. It looks simple to arrive at it. An organisation is, however, a complex of people and facilities involved, irrespectively it is, a project, a research department, or a university. DRS facilitates scientists, institute managers, and CEOs, to translate their research organisation in a smart one taking into account the scale of it.
SMART IN ORGANISATION MANAGEMENT
excel in research and innovation
A research manager starting to organise a research unit may have a feeling like a pop-artist at the start of a concert. How do you bend the plurality you are facing in one, desirable, direction?
The research manager needs to be very sensitive for the signals coming out of an organisation like a pop-artist does sense the audience. The signals picked up need, subsequently, to be translated in excellent music, organisation management.
We start each organisation task reading relevant documents and compiling a list of staff to be interviewed. We interview, in general, 5-30 people depending on the size of an organisation, a study team. The interviews are confidential. We present the aggregated, anonymous, results to the client only. We, subsequently, develop a concept of plan to get the organisation smarter. We check the feasibility of implementation of the plan by discussing it with the same people interviewed earlier. We finalise the plan using the comments of the second round of interviews. DRS may, subsequently, implement the plan, or not, depending on the requirements of the client.
